The Leopard

 (1963)

The Leopard Blu-ray truly is a masterpiece with perfect scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

In Sicily during the 1800s, as the aristocracy finds itself challenged by new democratic fervor, Don Fabrizio Corbera, Prince of Salina, tries to hold on tightly to the past, but it is clear his glory days are waning. This is perfectly exemplified by his dashing nephew Tancredi Falconeri and Angelica Sedàra, his gorgeous bride-to-be. As the revolt gathers steam and begins to result in real change, the aging prince must come to terms with the new world encircling him.

For more about The Leopard and the The Leopard Blu-ray release, see the The Leopard Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale, Alain Delon, Paolo Stoppa, Rina Morelli, Romolo Valli
Director: Luchino Visconti

The Leopard Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.21:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Luchino Visconti's The Leopard arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following texts appears in the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Director of photography Giuseppe Rotunno supervised this high-definition digital transfer, which was created on a Spirit Datacine from the original 35mm 8-perforation negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction".

"The American version of The Leopard is presented in the aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Black bars at the top and bottom of the screen are normal for this format. The digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from 4-perforation 35mm interpositive. The 4-perforation reduction was created in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio".

The Italian version of The Leopard looks absolutely stunning. Fine object detail is excellent, clarity very impressive and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. It is the film's color-scheme, however, that impresses the most. Yellows, greens, blues, reds, browns, blacks and whites are notably rich and well saturated. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are never an issue of concern. The film's grain structure is also intact, though some minor noise corrections have been applied. Furthermore, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review either. Finally, I did not see any large cuts, splices, debris, or stains. All in all, this is an outstanding Blu-ray release by the folks at Criterion, and in my opinion the best one yet in their quite remarkable catalog.

The American version of The Leopard is encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080i transfer. Unlike the Italian version, the American version has a fairly inconsistent color-scheme and is plagued by a variety of minor flecks, stains, marks, scratches, and cuts. Its contrast levels are also quite shaky. Optional English subtitles are not provided for it.

(Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Leopard Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Italian version of The Leopard arrives with an Italian LPCM 1.0 audio track, which serves legendary composer Nino Rota's terrific soundtrack exceptionally well. Additionally, the dialog is crisp, clean, stable and very easy to follow. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or dropouts to report in this review. Finally, Criterion have included optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The American version of The Leopard arrives with an English Dolby Digital 1.0 track. Unlike the Italian LPCM 1.0 track, the English Dolby Digital 1.0 track contains plenty of minor background hiss. The dialog appears relatively stable, but the crisp strings that are so prominent on the Italian LPCM 1.0 track are missing on the English Dolby Digital 1.0 track. There are no optional English subtitles for the American version.
